Misc episode of ''You Asked For It'' #6

Published 1951

Another misc episode of the 1950s American television series "You Asked for It", featuring the following: A race between an abacus and a then-modern calculating machine, the secrets of phony spiritualists, a Calypso song and dance, and TV wrestler Georgous George doing card tricks. Judging by the reference to 1951, it is likely this aired on the now-defunct DuMont Television Network. Complete with original commercials for Skippy Peanut Butter. Please forgive the annoying watermark, which I am told does not effect the PD status of this series.

Run time 29 minutes 26 seconds
Audio/Visual sound, black and white

Again, this show aired on Fridays. Therefore the correct airdate was Feb. 9th, not the 8th.

Wow... got the original broadcast date, season, & episode #.

That will sure help when it comes to assembling a playlist for an evening.

In our household, we have a facsimile Philco radio out on the porch. On it we play OTR programs..... from a Gizmo on the other side of the wall actually.
